Early kickstarter backer here... Didn't expect a fully functional product, so I was fine with the state of the instrument.
Now I checked back here after quite some time... Nice, apparently you got the bluetooth working on Android, congratulations!
Completely useless for me though, as I still can't update the firmware. Why does this still require buying a proprietary OS?
Well, I gave up my hopes now and will gift this piece of junk to charity. Good luck with your business model, it seems to work for you. That is very sad indeed...
Thanks for the feedback, Christian, and for supporting our Kickstarter.
Unfortunately, we're unable to promise any timeline on Linux support. At this time, we're currently focusing our development resources on both Mac and Windows OS, which have proven to be the most demanded by our users.
We will, however, let you know if anything changes on this front. I apologize for any confusion
Rather than provide Linux support, Artiphon could just document the USB protocol and make firmware updates available via the web site. Developers will build on top of that.

Please at least do this, it is so low effort compared to potential gain for the Linux users.
When you plug in Orba 2, does it show up as a removable drive? If so, I can get you a firmware file you can drop in there. This may work.
